EPE Group supports local Charity; Focus4Hope

EPE have teamed up with PriceCo to support local Brighouse based charity Focus4Hope this Christmas! 

Focus4Hope are a local charity that work to support the homeless; the elderly, the vulnerable, refugees and victims of domestic violence. They proudly go above and beyond to support the most vulnerable across West Yorkshire for the last 5 years. Launching their Food Bank at the start of the first lockdown last year they have provided food parcels; prescription pick up services and essentials to 1000’s of isolated and food-insecure individuals across the area.
Thanks to this great Charity over 2000 presents will be sent to children and over 1000 people will eat this Christmas. With a minimum of 500 food parcels being delivered to families who may not otherwise be able to afford a Christmas dinner this year.
Debra Nichol,  Captain of the EPE Company Culture Team asked the staff at EPE to donate food to the Christmas Wish list, and the response was overwhelming.
Sophie Hoyle, Store Manager at PriceCo Brighouse also took presents and crackers to the charity. Sophie comments:
‘I couldn’t imagine waking up Christmas Morning to no presents’
We’re very proud to be supporting such a worthy cause; alongside the presents, PriceCo have also donated £500 towards the Christmas food parcels for those who need it the most.

We hope to continue to make a difference in the community by supporting more charities like this in the future.

Melitta invites EPE to the Manchester United Football game! ⚽️

Thank you to EPE’s brand partner Melitta for inviting us to the Manchester United game at the Old Trafford Stadium this past weekend.

Melitta, the official coffee partner of Manchester United invited EPE’s Marketing & Purchasing teams to experience the true meaning of hospitality at Old Trafford.
The ladies were treated to a stunning 3 course meal & drinks before taking to their seats (with Melitta coffee in hand) positioned above and right on the half way line where they watched Manchester United take on Everton in a pre-season friendly.

When the final whistle blew the ladies had the added bonus of a photo opportunity with football legend Bryan Robson.

From the coffee, the food and the atmosphere of the game itself (4-0 to Manchester United)  it was an unforgettable experience from start to finish.
